    New on this site and i live in South Florida, i designed this piece of
    equipment, i've got it at a few Golds gyms here, some use it some
    still go the old way picking the weights from the floor and when there
    done with there reps 90% of the time they crash them to the floor.

    Just a idea of something different, i can take a barbell out of a rack
    why not dumbbells.

    If the powerblock system fits that would be a nice little set-up, quick change the dumbells and run through a workout in no time. Very good for someone with little time to burn switching plates or unracking racking multiple sizes of fixed db's. I think the platforms for the weights would have to be angled back a bit for the powerblocks since they have that small entry point for gripping. Maybe if the platform were hinged and had a lock pin to tillt back to adapt to powerblocks or regular dumbells.

    Seen something like it but only for flat benching, with this one you
    can adjust the racks to do Incline,flat,decline and seated military press.

    Now... This might sting a bit

    But if you aren't strong enough to lift the dumbells you are
    about to do your set with...

    ... Just take your tea-sipping, dainty ass over to the bench or military press, and give up on dumbells...

    Sorry if that doesnt seem constructive, but DUMBELLS are DUMBELLS!
    And I lift big heavy ones to build strength in more than one type of motion...

    I think you are prejudice!
    You didnt build one of those for kettle balls!

    Do you take your barbell off the floor to do your flat bench or inclines?
    Did't think so, so whats wrong with taking dumbbell out of a rack?
    I can put more weight on that rack than i can lift off the floor.

    I think it's a good idea. The thing I find most annoying about dumbbells is boosting them up to start the set; puts a lot of stress on my wrists.

    Same here KentDog, i have had back surgery so coming down on the bench
    with alot of weight causes a problem, and once when i was done with my reps
    i droped the weight to the floor and riped my shoulder up, now i just set them back in the rack.

    I dont' know about this... I mean, if I'm lifting weight that is difficult for me to lift on my own or I can't on my own I've got a spotter that assists me. Wouldn't this be a bad idea in the event you can't push the weight up? What happens when you are mid rep and run out of juice and you have to drop the weight suddenly? Where does this machine come into play there? I don't know about you, but it FUCKING hurts when an 80lbs DB is dropped on your chest then the other comes crashing down on your hip. I think that if you haven't got a spotter, or you can't lift the weight yourself then you shouldn't be going to heavy. IMO though...

    You can use a spotter with the machine to help you finish that burning last
    rep and get it on the rack.
    So lets say you don't have a spotter you still have the option to drop them to
    the side without hitting yourself.

    For me it's just easyer and more comftable taking them out of a rack and setting them back in, when droping them you could cause injury to your self
    and others. I've seen a guy in the gym drop the dumbbells and one of them bounced and hit a guy in the ankle and another guy once was doing declines
    with 80lb dumbbells he droped them and one bounced and hit the side of his head. And the machine saves on tearing up gym floors and dumbbells.
    So it has it's pluses.
    Thanks for the reply Tryn2getbig

    But even if your lifting a weight you can manage to rest on your thighs then roll up to your chest as you roll back you still can't really work yourself as hard when you have to save the strength to sit back up with the weights and then lower them to the floor, if you can just rack them on the last rep then you'll get more out of the DB's as well as saving your back on the sitting back up.....
